I wasn't trying to argue liquid vs air. OP said that his build was louder than he hoped and I was just stating that a liquid cooler (which is what the O11-Dynamic was built for) may help with that and probably provide better temps. I have nothing against air coolers. I have one in 4/5 of my PCs and I would even say their performance is very comparable to that of my 360mm liquid cooler especially these days.

Also forgot to say that as a user of the o11-Dynamic myself I suggest using a liquid cooler. That case was just not built for air cooling. That would also probably help with the noise. Regardless though, I love this build.

I don't typically go around saying things should be featured but based on your use of the Noctua fans alone while making the build aesthetically look good I have no doubt this should be a feature build.

Absolutely 10/10 +1

Take the AIO usb and route it behind the motherboard (up and over). Cable management is like 80% patience, 15% creativity, 5% skill. Anyone can do a decent job if you give yourself time.

Should have paid half the price for a power supply and invested that $60 into an SSD for your OS. Also, like many others have said, clean your room.

They will be very slow compared to your SSD but they will connect the same. I use 2 x 5tb HDD drives to store lesser played games, music, and movies. My OS and all programs go on my SSDs.

Can I make a suggestion for a mod? Cut out the time display and put in a temp gauge. Or a fan controller if you can find one small enough.

What I gathered from this:

The most disappointing thing about the new line of Ryzen CPUs is that they already have very good cooling and so I can't look forward to delidding one myself and get the same -20 degrees you get with those intel CPUs. XD

Thanks for the reply. It's awesome that you even took the time to improve this case. It looks great too. I started to modding mine but yesterday I got a Lian Li o11 Dynamic. I may just finish the mod just because though.

The Kraken will plug into the Hue+. A USB hub won't likely be necessary. I will warn you from personal experience though; NZXT Hue+ and their CAM software have been pretty terrible. Lots of issues from lots of users. I am currently in the process of removing all CAM related items in my PC.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Where's the mouse pad & gaming chair section?"

  • 5 months ago
  • 3 points

Mousepads I can see I guess but you could honestly make a mousepad out of anything. Chairs are no on here because they honestly shouldn't be purchased online. "gaming" chairs are not one size fits all and 1 that may be comfortable for you may be terrible for the next guy.

If you want my advice on a chair for a PC here it is:

Go to an Office Depot, Fry's, Ikea, or any other furniture, electronics, or office store and sit in their chairs. Find which one fits best for you at whatever you are willing to spend.

Also, "gaming" chairs, especially "racing" style chairs are notoriously gimmicky. The are usually a cheap cash grab to get you to buy something for the Aesthetics. That's not to say there are not some comfortable or well built ones but usually you are better off with a standard office chair with lumbar support.

Good luck.

The extra fan on the top of this case may actually be more detrimental to this cases thermals. I think it may pull air from the case quicker this way and not allowing as much cool, fresh air to hit the GPU. Also possible I don't know what I am talking about. Either way, this build looks incredible and I am glad to see another s340 Elite modded on the site. I am mid way to opening my front panel as well. But I am looking to fit more fans into it to create a push/pull setup.

anywho. +1

It seemed like every game I would try: Skylines, ROTR, SEIII, Rocket League, GTA 5, Metal Gear... All these games were way above the lower 70 temps I use to get.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "RMA vs DIY for hot GPU"

I never had any of these issues in the past for these same games though. The FPS in SEIII were mid 80's which I think is less than what a gtx 1080 should be doing. On the menu it sat steady at 60fps and 83-84c.

Previous to these issues games like heavily modded fallout 4 would run 74 average with FPS around 100.

Seen a youtube where some guy was raving about the performance of the Xeon E5-2420 V2 being $18 vs the performance of the Ryzen 5 so I was thinking about building a rig around one but if you can get newer everything else and in the end its the same cost...

This dropped on amazon down to $70 and people say it compares directly to the samsung equivalent. Keep an eye for it to drop again and it would be a really good deal.

Sorry I didn't notice this comment earlier. My Strix 1080 has yet to give me any problems at all and I have never heard the fans spinning. I've also never had any heating issues, even in the poor air flow conditions of the S340 Elite.

My first PC build, I did this. Not intentionally but I got my hand on a heatsink and dripped blood on the mobo. I thought about it for a minute and was like... meh, I am not cleaning that.

Great attention to detail and cable management. Putting some sleeved cables on your GPU and maybe MB will match up the color scheme but it still looks fantastic already. +1

Unfortunately, NZXT isn't a great company. I loved the look of my Kraken. I loved the performance but I have learned while dealing with NZXT today that I won't be buying any more of their products. They are rude and their focus is on data mining with their cam software rather than providing good products now.

Thanks to the 2 of you that responded. I think I have figured it out. One day I came up with a genius idea of putting and air purifier next to my PC to help with dust control. Well, if you do that then be sure not to use an ionizer as it will create a buildup of static electricity around the purifier.

And now you know. And knowing is half the battle.

This is a great super budget build for non-gaming. It's not pretty, it's not expensive, and it's not super fast. BUT it'll probably champion browsing and FBing for a long time. +1

I may even use this as a guide when I build a pc for a work buddy of mine.

If you spray the rad fins with plasti dip I am sure it will greatly reduce the airflow. However, using a thinner paint should only impede airflow by a very small amount.
